The future of the Hitman series was in question following the splitting up of publisher Square Enix and developer IO Interactive, but the show is most definitely going on. The next game in the series was set to be announced in the near future, but the cat has been let out of the bag early as Hitman 2 surfaced online.
Hitman 2 has been leaked on the Warner Bros. website, which means that they are the new publisher for the game. The site also revealed the official logo for the game, which you can check out below.
It’s going to be very interesting to see what direction IO Interactive takes this game, with the last game taking an episodic format that received a mixed response. The game overall was well-received, but the gradual release of new episodes rather than one full package annoyed some people. We’ll be finding that out soon enough, with the official reveal set for June 7th.
Hitman 2 does not yet have confirmed platforms for its release, but the last game released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. We’ll bring you all of the new information as soon as it becomes available, so be sure to stay tuned for that.
